I am a 15 year old girl and I have inverted nipples. They are sometime erect slightly when I am cold, but even then they are still somewhat inverted. I was wondering if there are anyways to make them so that they are no longer inverted because I am very self conscious about them.

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. Since the nipples are no inverted when in cold, so it does not look like any medical cause. The common medical causes of inverted nipples are short ducts, wide areola muscle sphincter, breast infection and inflammation and any malignancy.

It should get fine with increasing age as you are a teenager at this age but if it persists after 18-20 years of age also, then I would suggest you to get it evaluated from a gynecologist so that confirmation of diagnosis can be done and treatment planned.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
